When You're Fighting for Joy

“I’m lacking joy these days. I can feel it. Waves of irritation and frustration and sorrow even wash over me when I least expect it.

When my to do list just keeps getting longer and longer.

There have been days where I’ve just felt lost. Even a little empty. Being a wife and mom requires so much of me. I’m always giving. Always serving. Always being poured out. And I reach a point where I just don’t want to give anymore. Do you ever feel this way?”
